One of my best parts of flying these days is getting selected for TSA Pre-Check.

TSA Pre-Check saves lot of hassle of airport security, since those selected are allowed to keep their shoes on, able to leave their laptops in their bags, and don’t have to remove light jackets or belts.

Previously, only US based airlines participated in the program, however the Department of Homeland Security today announced today the expansion of the TSA Pre-Check to include eligible customers of Air Canada, the first international carrier to participate.

Per the article, “I thank Air Canada for working with TSA to become the first international carrier to offer TSA Pre✓,” said Jeh Johnson, Secretary of Homeland Security.  “This action underscores our commitment to easing the traveler experience, while maintaining the highest standards of security.

Today’s announcement makes a total of 10 carriers who participate in TSA Pre✓ including: Air Canada, Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Hawaiian Airlines, JetBlue Airways, Southwest Airlines, United Airlines, US Airways and Virgin America.

Travelers flying out of the U.S. on Air Canada will now have the opportunity to receive TSA Pre✓ when utilizing printed boarding passes at the airport check-in desk or from the kiosk in the departure lobby.  Air Canada will expand its participation in TSA Pre✓ to include mobile app and printed at home paper boarding passes later this year.

I expect this to be the first of many foreign carriers to be added to the program. Stay tuned!
